After a 23-13 road win at South Carolina last Saturday, Kentucky football returns home where it will attempt to snap a 30-year losing streak against Florida. Kickoff is 7:30 p.m. at Kroger Field.

[I’ve been at all 30 of Kentucky’s losses to Florida. Here are five that stick out.]

I talked with former Kentucky wide receiver and kick return star Derek Abney, who now lives and works in South Carolina and who was at the UK-South Carolina game on Saturday. We talk about the win over the Gamecocks, Derek’s thoughts on the Cats and what he sees as the keys to Kentucky’s game with the Gators.
